Mac OSX 10.5 Leopard build 9A241 leaked

Recommended Posts

The overal interface is still very similar to 10.4 Tiger.

I assume that means that Apple hasn't updated it's interface for the developer build because it's trying to keep the new look a "hidden secret" from Microsoft right? :D

I dunno. Could be, but then again what we see might be all we get (more or less).

The change from Mac OS X 10.2 Jaguar to 10.3 Panther was pretty drastic too.

I don't think there will be a huge Interface Change...but I am sure there will be more of the "unified/plastic" look in Leopard, and less of the brushed metal.

I'm starting to think that as well. But I hope we're wrong. :pinch:

Personally, I'm not too fond of the brushed metal. =/

I always thought Brushed Metal looked very nice, but just old fashioned. The new iTunes metal looks more modern. However, I could go either way.

There you go! Something iTunes-like would be nice.

Install UNO and you get the plastic-iTunes look on all your windows, completely replaces Brushed Metal and can be undone just by running the installer again.

I just took this shot of DVD Player 5.0. I thought you might like it. ;)

It really puzzles me why Apple goes through all this trouble of coding "Unified Brushed" into individual applications instead of just applying it on a system level like they did with Aqua, Brushed and the Unified title/toolbar look.

Another thing I came across, huge application icon sizes:

Leopard seems to actually contain a resolution independent UI. As you can see most of the control buttons are vectored but the titlebar background isn't yet.

...

Nice :yes:

And the huge icons are cool (are you adding the drops shadows, or does OS X finally capture the shadows with Command+4+Space ?)

I'm hoping OSX captures the shadows. If you look at the Expose/Spaces screenshot. When you invoke Expose the drop shadows are still on the expose'd windows. In Tiger they disappear. Maybe Core Animation allows for a more powerful, better looking UI. :p

Nope. Mac OS X Leopard actually does those automatically now when capturing a window. Nice huh?

I noticed that Windows Vista's screenshot making tool still sees the entire Desktop and it's windows as one flat image. Pretty amazing that the Mac OS X interface is actually layered and can be captured as such.

These large versions of the icons must have something to do with the resolution independent GUI.

Also. Can someone confirm whether the new Safari works with the Rich Text Editor on the Neowin forums or does Neowin default to the standard editor. Thanks.

At this point there are only very few applications that go up to that size (the only ones I found are posted above). The weird thing is that when opening those .icns files in 10.4 Tiger they only go up to 128x128 pixels. :/

thefunkymunky, so far Neowin seems to work fine with Safari 3.
